Air Force Captain Carrie Wolf is the third Guantanamo Prosecutor to choose reassignment along with other prosecutors over the "Trial Rigging" scandal which is currently turning the worlds eyes towards the Guantanamo Terrorist Trials. Captain Wolf asked to be reassigned the same time as two other prosecutors Major Robert Preston and Captain John Carr. It is understood the Captain Wolf shared the same concerns towards the trials as her colleagues.
A third US military prosecutor has walked out of the commissions process set up to try Guantanamo Bay detainees because of concerns it was unfair, the ABC has learned.

Air Force Captain Carrie Wolf chose to take a reassignment along with other prosecutors.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

At the same time a judge advocate general closely involved in the trials supports the process and agrees with the official Pentagon line that "a total breakdown in personal relationships led to misunderstandings.

I feel this is just the tip of the iceberg and more and more issues and problems surrounding the trials will come to light over the next fews weeks.

"a total breakdown in personal relationships led to misunderstandings."

That sounds like "corporate speak" from a human resource department for: "they had a raging screaming match and threw things".

Hooray for men of conscience.

Aug. 8, 2005 issue - An FBI agent warned superiors in a memo three years ago that U.S. officials who discussed plans to ship terror suspects to foreign nations that practice torture could be prosecuted for conspiring to violate U.S. law, according to a copy of the memo obtained by NEWSWEEK. The strongly worded memo, written by an FBI supervisor then assigned to Guantanamo, is the latest in a series of documents that have recently surfaced reflecting unease among some government lawyers and FBI agents over tactics being used in the war on terror. This memo appears to be the first that directly questions the legal premises of the Bush administration policy of "extraordinary rendition"—a secret program under which terror suspects are transferred to foreign countries that have been widely criticized for practicing torture.
And more is starting to surface

A Third prosecutor walks out?

These trials must be a total sham.

The Gitmo prisoners were turned in for $5000.00 a head.

How many of you would have relatives and acquaintances that would pretty gladly turn you in [with no questions asked] for $5K ? *Be Honest Now*
Now imagine you live in a war torn country where the average annual income is $500.

Do i see a lot of timidly raised hands out there?

Now if we can get enough frothing at the mouth, flag waving idiots to paper over this little political dump pile . . .

The injustice can continue.

There was no "misunderstanding". I think it is pretty obvioius they fully intended to rig the trials. They simply got caught.

It's just all so sick and twisted.

A Pentagon spokesman said the Defense Department does not engage in renditions, but officials have confirmed that 65 detainees have been transferred from Guantanamo for further detention or prosecution by foreign governments, including 29 to Pakistan, seven to Russia, five to Morocco and four to Saudi Arabia—countries the State Department criticizes for practicing torture.

What a fantastic idea. Let's send our suspected terrorists to SAUDI ARABIA for them to find out about their plans. The Saudis are trustable, right? Ayoye.

Isn't Bin Laden supposed to hiding IN Pakistan somewhere? They just can't find him because he has so much support? Yeah, let's send some detainees over there for them to torture, we can trust the Pakistanis. I mean, professional torturers and interrogators, them's good people.

I kinda feel like my head is gonna explode.
